Judge draws parallel between race, sex discrimination

Texas employees may be interested in a ruling made by a federal court judge who compared anti-gay discrimination to racial discrimination. It was made by a Pennsylvania judge who is hearing a case brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on behalf of an employee who claimed that repeated harassing comments pertaining to his sexuality constituted a hostile work environment.

Changes to the salary requirements for exempt employees

Most full-time employees in Texas are entitled to receive overtime pay if they work more than 40 hours per week. However, some salaried employees are exempt from overtime compensation. A salaried employee is an employee who is paid the same fixed salary regardless of changes in their work hours or performance. Overtime pay exemptions are only made for employees who do so-called white collar work.
